The rebuilding of the British Embassy in Rome presented an opportunity for British consultants to work in another European country and to compare the skills and techniques of the two building industries. This paper outlines the organisation of building design in Italy. It describes the design and analysis of the Embassy building and some of the problems encountered during construction.
This paper is an extension of a paper by the same author published in The Structural Engineer for May 1968. Two aspects of the problem which were not dealt with
in the previous paper are treated.
